This is definitely the best original Spanish tapas in town! So good that you would almost not want other people knowing the place:-). Quality meat and fish prepared in original style and served deliciously and beautiful. Don't expect the regular albóndigas in tomato sauce etc. But be surprised and enjoy!

Imaginative selection of tapas, and served in portions that you can easily turn into a meal, deciding as you go along. Location between canals, near public transport. Wish they had a greater wine and beer selection. But the tapas were delicious.

We happened to walk by Tia Rosa near our accommodation so decided to see whether we could get a table for the evening. We actually didn't read any reviews before going and wow what a treat we were in for. Firstly a fantastic range of wines. Secondly fabulous service. But most importantly the food was amazing. Personal highlights included the... More

After looking on Trip Advisor this pace stood out and wee can see why! I lived in the Canary Islands for some 5 years and know my tapas! This honestly was better than in the CI's. We were welcomed by very friendly staff and you could feel the ambiance when you walked through the door. The tortilla came not as... More

This place is a gem. It's got a great friendly cosy atmosphere, and the food was amazing! Can most highly recommend the steak skewer, but all the tapas dishes we had were delicious. The waiter was great, helping us with how many to order, and he was right- we definitely didn't need more as we'd thought! Great place, would definitely... More

A gorgeous small restaurant with a very welcoming atmosphere. It had a fun buzz to it. The tapas were amazing - I think we ordered far too many (it was difficult to choose! They all sounded so nice). We liked that only one or 2 dishes came at a time, which allowed us to enjoy it all thoroughly. Wine recommendations... More

The Rembrandtplein/Thorbeckeplein area has over a hundred restaurants, I've eaten at one. Walk south for 2 minutes and you find two of the area's best little restaurants, my other review and Tia Rosa's where the food is extraordinary, easily some of the best tapas anywhere, including Spain. I recommend the Jamon croquettas and the patatas Rosa to start. The food... More

We went to this restaurant a while ago and it was great, so we said we would be back and we did. But... disappointed this time. All food seemed very over-cooked. Only nice dish was the potatoes but to be fair, how can you go wrong with fried patatoes (patatas Rosa)?? And the wine was fine too. Nice atmosphere, pleasant... More

Dropped in for an early meal on a Monday and had a tantastic assortment of tapas. The restaurant was at first quiet but by 7:30pm was lively and full. The staff was friendly and very efficient, we never had to wait to order more food or ask for more drinks. Our favorite was the Chorizo sauteed in an olive oil... More

Tia Rosa is a restaurant located at Reguliersgracht, one of the most beautiful canals of Amsterdam. A place where the free atmosphere of Amsterdam is combined with Spanish charm.

Here you are very welcome to get acquainted with the typical Spanish cuisine, a wide range of tapas, and an exquisite selection of wines. Tia Rosa has an authentic Spanish ambience, complete with a beautiful wooden bar, Spanish mosaic, wine barrels, and an open kitchen. You can order several different tapas and enjoy them standing at the bar while drinking a good glass of beer or wine. If you would rather enjoy a full diner experience, then we welcome you into our cosy restaurant or on our lovely little terrace. Tia Rosa is housed in what used to be two identical warehouses called 'De Zon en De Maan', the Sun and Moon, two beautiful now fully restored buildings from the 17th century. That way Tia Rosa is a small piece of Spain located in the middle of the famous Amsterdam canals.
